Agree. :)

That may be a bit too broad though. How about "still valid and either
(1) quite important or (2) something we expect will be addresses
reasonably soon"? We have many old tickets that are technically still
valid but unlikely to see any work anytime soon (otherwise they would
have been addressed already), and I'm worried that they would just add
noise without value. The old tickets won't go away, the JIRA will
remain. If something becomes relevant/active, we can always bring it
over at that time.

Good point. Creating just one root PR that mentions the others sounds
good to me for such cases.
